When this was originally announced, it was quite unexpected. Through Twitter, Nintendo of America just asked us to watch a video, and it was from there that Reggie explained his decision of leaving behind his Title as the President of Nintendo of America in a few months, coming April this year.
He thanks the fans and talks a bit what it's been for him to work for Nintendo. It seems like filling his shoes is not going to be easy.
Quite humorous that the person who'll have the honour and pressure to fill that spot is named Doug Bowser.
I think no many of us even knew about hiom before this annoucement and from my understanding he's the Vice President of the Sales and Marketing department.
He got a twitter account, thetruebowser, from which he seems to have good sense of humor and seems fine with the Last name and the jokes that people are coming up about Bowser taking over the company.
Just look at the Mario and Luigi plushies in that picture, haha.
Hopefully the new President can infuse his own flavor while keeping the spirit of Nintendo.
Personally, I am curious to see if he'd appear in direct and if he'd have some fun with the whole "Bowser" thing.
So what do you guys think of this?
